Experienced owners, personal touch, great location (3 BR, 1 BA, Sleeps 4-6)
This was our home for years. We were married next to the Eno River within walking distance of the home and our reception was held on the deck afterward (in April when the azaleas are in full bloom)! With the birth of our second child we moved to nearby Chapel Hill. We love this beautiful forest location so much that we couldn't bear to part with it and instead now share it with others through VRBO. We still visit often.
Owner purchased this House in 1998
What makes this House unique
We love to walk the miles of nature trails that begin at the end of the driveway and lead to the Eno River. The Eno River trails are a favorite in our family- they provided the backdrop for our wedding and we still walk them often!

Cozy place to stay
This is our 7th or 8th stay at the Forest Home. It is always nice and cozy and meets our every need. It is convenient to everything while at the same time it is secluded in a quiet wooded residential neighborhood. Eno River trails are right at your doorstep. We saw three deer in the yard this time. Thanks Laura and Brad.
2 friends and I stayed for a week while attending classes and training at Duke School of Nursing. The house was as described. Clean, well-stocked. Owners responsive to any concerns or questions. Enjoyed the outdoors and visits from deer and squirrels and peaceful location.
A Real Gem
Since this was our fourth stay here, obviously we love it. It's a charming place with all the amenities of a great vacation home. The wooded location is wonderful -- close to everything Durham has to offer, which is a lot. The neighborhood is quiet. The home is located at the end of a partly gravel road, and there's a trail just next to it that leads to a small creek which can be crossed for a longer hike to the Pump Station Trail on the Eno River. The owners are most helpful and easy to reach if necessary.
Away from it all
Lovely little house in the woods.
Stayed a week and enjoyed the quiet and nature.
Walk the trail and go swimming in the Eno River, visit Bennett Farm where the document ending the civil Wat was signed (5mns away), or go to Duke Homestead, also v close, to learn about the man who helped shape Durham and region.
The house is convenient for everything. Or just stay in and relax !
Just what we needed. Would definitely rent the cottage again. Accommodating, comfortable and “just like home”!!
Forest House was perfect for our stay
